Repertoire Note

This was Finzi’s contribution to A Garland for the Queen, a collection of part songs by major British composers of the day commissioned as an act of homage to the new Queen on the occasion of her coronation and first performed on the night before the ceremony. Finzi set a poem of Edmund Blunden and responded perfectly in music to his images of nature, spring and renewal which were entirely appropriate to the occasion.
